Another Christmas spent with Brad and Jen

American hustleJust last Christmas it was Silver Linings Playbook and now, we have been given another Bradley Cooper/Jennifer Lawrence movie, American Hustle. The hype and my expectations had been so high. My disappointment was even greater.The movie is MUCH too long. The acting was good (especially Christian Bale and Amy Adams), but this doesn’t make up for a movie which is slow and tedious. It took too long to set up the hustle and by the end you were just glad it was over. There are other better “con” movies that are more fun and more exciting to watch. My advice: see a matinee — the tickets will be discounted and you’ll be more likely to stay awake the 138 minutes (plus all the coming attractions).
